Nowadays some bods in Moto GP are getting elbows and shoulders down... spose with 250bhp on tap you need a bit o body weight to pull one round a corner... they are built to be unstable nowadays too steep steering head angles and steering dampers make them a tad flighty in a straight line but stable in a corner

Anybody remember that hangover cure they used to sell in pubs? - Underburg it was called. Came in tiny little bottles on a bandolier.
